Bedner's Farm & Greenhouse

Fall Container Gardening Ideas

We love fall mums, and grow thousands of them here on the farm, but they arenโ€™t your only option for mixed containers.

Some other plants that are great for the fall include:

  • Celosia
  • Ornamental peppers
  • Creeping jenny
  • Coleus
  • Ornamental kale or cabbage
  • Pansies
  • Ornamental grasses or millet
  • Calibrachoa
  • Verbena
  • and more!


Plant a variety of these in the thriller-filler-spiller format, then add in a few gourds, cornstalk pieces, bittersweet vine branches, faux fall foliage floral sprays, or a scarecrow. Get creative and have fun with it!

If youโ€™re short on time or want something specific, weโ€™d be happy to do it for you. Click here to schedule a Custom Container Appointment with one of our experts.
